Posts Tagged ‘life after work’

I have not been writing for a long time, even though I’ve had more than enough time since May 2021.  The previous few years I was temping with our local Police Department Recruiting office,  my favorite job ever.  I’ve had many changes in my life, but with the worldwide pandemic, it changed my life again forever.

May 20, 2021 was my last day of the assignment as I finished work on the most recent batch of applicants.  Never to be called back again, due to more changes in the department.

The Covid pandemic caused quarantines around the world and ultimately many things brought a wave of changes in our personal, societal, and professional lives.  New normal.  Some good, some not so much.

Having to get unemployment was good on one hand, not so good on the other.  Not being able to travel, even to see family and friends outside of our own locations was sad.  Thankfully in late 2021 my brother and I were able to visit each other in the different states we live in.  I also got to visit friends in another state.

It is over a year now since my last assignment.  I actually like not having a job, except for running low on finances.

I love being able to spend more time with friends, available to help someone when in need, and having coffee then a walk with one of my dear friends most every week.  It is great having time to read, rest my body/mind/spirit, and mostly quiet time with God.

I am very blessed and grateful for my life, the people in my life, and pretty good health.  My ability to help others, however I can, is a blessing.  As changes are a part of life I continue to trust in God’s love and mercy to show me His way forward.
